A New Season Of Moth Stories Begins Saturday

I’ve got a long trip coming up this Saturday. While I’m usually glued to my radio whenever VPR is on, I lose track of time completely when I’m listening to The Moth Radio Hour. This weekend VPR will broadcast the first of five new episodes of The Moth Radio Hour, so I’ll be sure I'm driving Saturday at 4 o'clock.

This new season features some of the best stories I’ve heard from The Moth. Comedian Mike Birbiglia hosts the first episode, and has a story of his own—a tale of a free vacation that leads to a breakthrough and a breakup. Dan Kennedy—an occasional host of The Moth—has an unforgettable therapy session with an unconventional social worker. And Al Letson, host of State of the Re:Union, offers a heartbreaking story in which he realizes he's not quite ready for a second child.

As faithful Moth listeners will know, this program features stories told live without scripts, notes, props or accompaniment. The stories are often funny, sometimes poignant and always compelling. Please let us know what you think of The Moth at our homepage. And enjoy!
